He made the statement while being received by Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Tran Sy Thanh on September 21.

Referring to the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries (November 25, 1971 - November 25, 2021), Ambassador Nicolai Prytz said that in November, Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik, the Duchess and the business group will make a visit to Vietnam. Besides, many cultural exchange activities will take place. Therefore, he expressed his wish to receive the support of the Hanoi authority for the upcoming cooperation between Denmark and Vietnam.

He emphasized that, besides economic values, the Danish business community advocates bringing bilateral, comprehensive and sustainable benefits, as well as job creation opportunities for local people. The Ambassador hoped that in the coming time, the two sides would strengthen cooperation in other areas where Denmark is strong, such as culture, technology and education.

Appreciating the proposals from the Ambassador, Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Tran Sy Thanh affirmed that the relationship between Vietnam and Denmark, as well as between Hanoi and Danish localities over the past time, has developed comprehensively in many fields, including diplomacy, economy, agriculture and innovation.

The Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee assigned the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Department of Education and Training, and the Department of Culture and Sports to study and implement specific cooperation in fields of mutual interest. Hanoi is ready to coordinate and create conditions for the Embassy of Denmark to organize diplomatic and cultural events on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations.

Referring to the general planning of the capital until 2030, with a vision to 2045, Mr. Thanh said that Hanoi is aiming to become a green, civilized and modern city; and it wanted Denmark to actively exchange experiences in this area. He also affirmed that Hanoi is ready to welcome Danish investors and experts to cooperate and work.

Appreciating the investment and cooperation achievements of Danish enterprises in the capital over the past time, he added he hoped the two sides would continue promoting cooperation in this field, as the number is still modest compared to bilateral potential./.
